The Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Orrville Area Safety Council invite CEO's, Senior Management and all workplace professionals concerned with managing risk and controlling workers compensation costs to a premier breakfast event on Tuesday, March 14 at The University of Akron Wayne College.
Keynote speaker will be Jerry Krankovich, Director, Risk Insurance for The J.M. Smucker Company. Jerry will speak on the topic "Using Culture and Prevention to Improve Workers Compensation Results and Manage Costs."
Working with the belief that the majority of loss is preventable, we will discuss the benefits of developing a strong safety culture with loss prevention as the goal. Recognizing that some losses will still occur, we can leverage good culture and practice to drive costs down and get injured workers back on the job.
A full breakfast buffet, catered by Village Catering will be provided. Cost to attend is $15 per person. Reservations are required. Contact Jen at the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce for assistance, 330-682-8881.
